Corporate management turnover in 2007 was slightly below the record levels registered for 2006 but remained very high. 2007 CEO, CFO and C-level turnover totals registered an overall decline of 5%, 2% and 2% respectively from that of 2006. The actual CEO and CFO changes for 2007 overall, however, were far more "significant" and in many cases were far more high-profile for the companies involved than were those registered in 2006.

Liberum attributes the continued high level of management turnover to a number of key factors:
• increasing competition both domestic and international;
• growing complexities of business and work;
• increasing government regulations e.g., Sarbanes Oxley and other laws;
• increasing shareholder activism;
• the sub-prime credit crisis;
• increasing independence of many corporate boards.

Outlined below are the key management change data points for 2007. After the yearly numbers, you will find a close-up look of the key management change numbers for December 2007 along with a list of "significant" CEO changes in December Liberum advises investors give a second look at Liberum offers the most comprehensive system for monitoring corporate turnover.

Investors need to diligently monitor key management changes. Certain management changes should be viewed as a "special situation" that can have a direct and major impact on a company's performance and share price.

New CEOs know more than the market about the company. Their decision to take the position contains information. Likewise the departing CEO. Likewise departing CFOs.

New CEOs will bring new skills and often-times a new direction. This is normally significant, and worth analyzing.

The next step is to get a reliable source of these investment leads - and that's why funds use Liberum (a division of The Wall Street Transcript).
